  • Summary: Our first receiver and foray into home theater and we couldn't be more pleased. We wanted something that we could grow into so we wanted a mid-level model and not the cheapest out there.

Better Than Expected

5 February 2015
  • Excerpt: This unit is excellent and has more features than I realized when I bought it. Setup was simple and it is mostly intuitive to use. The menu system requires some getting use to and a call to tech support was useful to decode the menu system. Tech support is fast and accurate.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote
  • Cons: Poor Interface

nice solid receiver

  • Excerpt: Replaced my old NAD receiver with this one. For a basic two channel setup for listening to classical music it works very well. There are plenty of hookups, including one for a phono/turntable, which is rare nowadays. Everything sounds clean and clear on my KEF speakers, plenty of power.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls

The Sound of Music

Snowflake, B&H Photo
23 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this receiver with my ipad to stream music over some big old speakers I bought at a rummage sale. Once I got it going, the sound was unbelievable! I have been listening to the radio as well as I work in my studio.I thought it was glitching out but figured it was my wi-fi not reaching too far.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Good Remote
  • Cons: Confusing Remote

Great 2 channel system!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 October 2014
  • Summary: This receiver has shown me the folly of trying to use a multi channel receiver to play just music. For pure 2 channel sound this will blow just about anything else out of the water. This receiver is being used for a phono, CD changer, cassette and mini disc player.

Great bargain

Richardson P., Newegg
19 June 2014
  • Summary: I am very happy with this product.
  • Pros: Very easy set-up, great sound with my JBL outdoor speakers. I am probably under-tasking this device as I am only using it to play itunes/ipod and internet radio on two speakers, and it can certainly do much more. I am very pleased with how quickly I was able to pull up my Pandora stations, and us...
  • Cons: The interface via the remote can be a bit tedious and cumbersome. It would be great if there were a way to program the receiver with favorites and such once it was on your network with some software.

Great Receiver at a Good Price

Anne, B&H Photo
13 May 2014

  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls
